    The bBC has reported on the release of so called Irishman Ibrahim Halawa who was nicked and jailed 4 years ago when he and his family were picked up by the Egyptian Old bill. Since then the bBC has gone out of its way in which to promote this female sex organ as a … victim.
    The thing is the bBC is somewhat remiss on the background of the Halawa family. You see they are Muslim brotherhood royalty. Whilst the bBC promotes the image that the Halawa siblings just happened to be on holiday when the MB were removed. The facts on the ground say otherwise. Yet the bBC refuse to mention those facts. Facts such as this video:

        I don’t think the BBC will be interested in reporting any of this .According to the Straits Times ( reported on the Dry Bones cartoon site)

        LAHORE, Pakistan (AFP) – A Pakistani Christian man has been sentenced to death for blasphemy after he sent a Muslim friend a poem on WhatsApp that insulted Islam, a lawyer said on Friday (Sept 15). Nadeem James was charged in July last year after his Muslim friend Yasir Bashir complained to police that he received a poem on the messaging app that was derogatory towards the Prophet Mohammed and other holy figures. “James was handed a death sentence by the court on Thursday on blasphemy charges,” defence lawyer Anjum Wakeel said.

        “My client will appeal the sentence in the high court as he has been framed by his friend, who was annoyed over James’ affair with a Muslim girl,” Mr Wakeel said. He said the trial was held inside a prison due to security reasons after local Muslim clerics had threatened James and his family. Court officials confirmed the sentence.

        Blasphemy is a hugely sensitive issue in conservative Muslim Pakistan, where even unproven allegations can stir beatings and mob violence. In 2014, a Christian couple were lynched then burnt in a kiln in Punjab province after being falsely accused of desecrating the Quran. Rights groups have said the laws are routinely abused to seek vengeance.

          An absolutely appalling story. Maybe if the BBC could get their heads from up a Rohingya Muslims arse, they might care to tell us why THOSE injustices need endless inflatings, whereas this poor lads right to life is somehow not worth us knowing about.
          Where are the churches then, when they might be expected to know or speak out on this-it`s not as if it`s the first time is it?
          Yet, we`ve just had endless musings over how the British screwed up over the partition of India and Pakistan.
          Pakistan has been described as an Army with a State attached to it. The Ministry of Defence need to tell the Pakistanis that if they kill this lad, then all their bloody officers here are getting kicked out. When are we actually going to stick up for Christains worldwide?..Muslims at least can feign this when they need to.
          Will pray for this poor lad, just sick of these stories.

    BBC and their “Special Reports”

    Every day I switch on the BBC, there seems to be “a special report or investigation commissioned by the BBC”. Nine times out of ten it is anti-Tory or anti-Brexit. I was under the misapprehension that we paid out TV tax to commission the BBC to report unbiased News. These days they are more intent on creating Socialist news and propaganda to hammer the Government. Also by coincidence they always seem to have one of these “investigations” ready to go when bad news (Islamic terrorist attack) strikes (the lastest one was the mental health of poorly paid firemen who have had to suffer the likes of Grenfell). They can then quickly roll this out and minimise their reporting of those poor souls that have been radicalised. Sickening that we are actually paying for these pro-Corbyn broadcasts. I dearly wish there was an investigation into the BBC’s investigations and the goings on behind the scenes at this corrupt organistation spreading fake news.

        ….and no-one seems to ask the obvious question… “…and what was the objective of commissioning this report in the first place ?”

        If the investigator was set up to prove a point that the BBC wished to advance, then you can hardly call it objective reporting or analysis. As has been mentioned above, there does seem to be a tendency to slant these reports into delivering negative findings about the BBC’s pet hates, or to provide cover, or equivalence, for other stories that don’t match the BBC’s bias.

          You can write the conclusion of the report before they have even started, and they generally are of course.

          The BBC have commissioned a report on the EU and it concludes it is a good thing. They BBC report the finding of a (TUC) funded report that concludes the public sector ought to be given more money. A wholly independent report produced by journalists wanting to work for the BBC have concluded that the BBC is spiffing.

    Al beeb is drawing a picture that the Brexit planning is chaotic . I don’t think it is but if deals aren’t made I think that will be good all round. We just leave . No cash hand over – no transition over years and then we ll see who shouts the loudest about the need for agreement .
    I just hope that we ll have enough customs and border staff to control the border .
    Each EU country will have to make bi lateral agreements for residence and import exports .

    The way the EU non elected managers are behaving its as much as they deserve.

        So very odd though, no one at the bbc or Ofcom or Government cares to do a darned thing about it.

        If the bbc would simply admit, have it written into the Charter maybe, that they are a left wing pressure group and disseminator of Progressive Globalist propaganda, with an avowed aim to change rather than simply report – I might have just a little respect for them.

    I joined the site recently after a couple of months reading members posts . I found the site by googleing BBC bias after becoming sick and tired of ” experiencing” it . Before finding this site my better half and I thought it must “just be us ” so its been fantastic to read that it wasn’t. We don’t watch any BBC ” news ” now or their morning misery start to the day.
    Life is nicer when you get the BBC the hell out of it .

      I haven’t actually switched off from the BBC but watch an awful lot less than I did and hence why I comment here less. Bit even with the amount I do watch, I usually find the bias within seconds.
      So coming to Biased BBC is now one of my main sources for news. Which means as well as David Vance and Alan, I may use this as an opportunity to thank people who put up links on this site.

      Hello Dimebars
      I am new as well, today in fact. I wasn’t too impressed with the ITV News at Ten either, it seems no better than the BBC, especially with Peston giving his overt anti-Brexit slant on what Boris Johnson didn’t actually say. This story headlined before the one about the terrorists repaying this country by bombing a tube station.

        Sky website is also just as bad as BBC in its bias, and usually a mirror image of articles – they must get their info from a centralised source.

            It’s mostly due to the fact that they are all of the same mind. Having got to the top of news organisations, editors only employ like-minded hacks, which isn’t hard to do as they are all ‘educated’ by the same handful of far Left academics. It only takes a decade or so to seize control that way and little blood is spilled.

            Given a Left compliant newsroom fed on a diet of handouts from Left wing sources (see my earlier post where I quoted former BBC newsman Scott Gronmark) the result is the constant stream of Leftist drivel we are fed from the broadcast media and much of the printed press.

            No need for tanks, revolutions or executions. They will come later.

    I listened to the Jezza Swine Show this lunchtime discussing the recent…er…unpleasantness on the Tube.

    Vine interviewed some female writer who said that she assessed the threat posed by an elderly vicar’s wife wearing a rucksack on a tube train in the same way she would an “Asian” in his twenties similarly attired.
    She also described how wonderful the multicultural milieu one finds in London was, yet apparently she had moved herself and her family out to Oxfordshire; I presume because it is possible to have just too much of a good thing.

    Listening to this typical; grotesque; BBC; PC tripe, I was reminded of how Steve Sailer so accurately defined it:

    “Political correctness is a war on noticing.”

      I like to equate it with AIDS. Your critical faculties are to your mind what your immune system is to your body. Just as infected patients become vulnerable to opportunistic diseases like flu or pneumonia, victims of PC have their critical capacities so ravaged that the Police could just sit by, do nothing as school girls get raped and tortured on an industrial scale. What happened to the rule of law in Rotherham and other places? Such is the witchcraft of political correctnsss.

    I am on holiday and a couple of hours ahead of uk time . I posted yesterday that the Times, Express, Mail and Guardian were not allowing any comments on the Parons Green bombing. This morning I took a look at the Times at about 5am uk time and under a new article about the bomb being made in a garden shed there were comments about a dozen. After breakfast I went back to look again and they had all disappeared and no comments were allowed. Checked the other papers and again no comments allowed. I find it strange. That the Times allows a few comments in the dead of night and then removes them in the early morning. Perhaps they will reappear later.
    Of course the comments were all critical of the various pro immigrant, refugee, migrant lobbyists and the government for letting more in. But I am getting increasingly concerned that there is a concerted effort by the authorities to shut down public comment on this topic. What next full blown censorship so that Islamic attacks are never reported, how do we know that isn’t already happening? After all the French, German and Swedish authorities and press have all ‘ under reported’ Islamic attacks. Perhaps there have been more attacks than are reported. Once freedom of speech is curtailed any sensible person begins to doubt everything that they are being told and suspects that there is much that is not being reported. The government and the press have lost credibility and trust on this issue. Of course the BBC lost both years ago.

      I think that the papers hide behind the argument that public comment will prejudice the case if/when it comes to trial, and perhaps the accused would yes that defence. I’m not sure how valid it is. Any suitable lawyers on here?
      Meanwhile , free discussion about the Muslim war on Britain and the west is restricted to sites like this. I suspect we are all being monitored by agencies who will report us to Saunders as purveyors of hate speech.

    To see how far the BBC have plunged, try the DVD of their 1977 drama ‘Wings’. Several episodes into this serial about the Royal Flying Corps in 1915, and Mr Hand-Basket and I haven’t seen anything historically unbelievable. Not even one transgendered Somali has been shown in air battles or trench warfare.

    (I’m just afraid they’ll do a re-make. Baron von Richthofen will be portrayed as claiming that Germany only wanted a unified, peaceful Europe, and it broke his heart to shoot down out interfering pilots. The Germans’ Junkers war plane probably won’t get a mention either.)

    Speaking of aircraft, I’ve a story from Australia. The government have sent out a postal survey to test public reaction to marriage law change. A form arrived at our house today asking: ‘Should the law be changed to allow same-sex couples to marry?’ The media are all propagandising for ‘Yes’ to what they term ‘marriage equality’. (It never occurs to them that even gay-friendly people may find the whole idea damned silly.) However, an enterprising pilot took a plane up and wrote: ‘Vote no!’ in huge vapour-trail letters above central Sydney.

    The liberal ruling class are having a fit of the vapours.

      Ah yes, the ‘equality’ lie. All adult men and women have had equal rights to marry for centuries, finding a willing partner is the problem for most.

      Then there was the ‘all we want are civil partnerships’ lie when all along they wanted to destroy the universal concept of marriage.

      The inevitable result has been the creation of new inequalities – the self-proclaimed ‘same-sex’ couple now has a choice of ‘marriage’ or ‘civil partnership’, the later being denied to normal couples, (I’m reclaiming the use of normal to mean conforming to the standard, the usual etc.), or for that matter the various sex pairings of siblings.

      I’m at a loss to understand why two non-related, co-habiting, same-sex, (not necessarily engaged in mutual sexual activity), people should be able to claim pension and property rights via civil partnership when siblings, literally after a lifetime’s relationship and investment in a property can’t. Perhaps there is a verse in the Koran that they could invoke?

        Thanks to the media changing attitudes, homosexuality and transgender is rapidly becoming more or less the ‘norm’ now, and we certainly don’t want to return to the days of fear they suffered decades ago. However, I don’t appreciate having it shoved in my face (metaphorically !) by tv dramas and ads, and its not my business what anyone gets up to behind closed doors. I do get a bit twitchy though, when the term ‘natural’ is brought into the conversation. Surely the animal kingdom is about as ‘natural’ as can be attained, and I’ve yet to see two of the same sex of anything in a comprising situation.

    BBC Wales local news last night covered the 20th anniversary of devolution. It interviewed some of the same people it interviewed “on the day”. It must have had some terrible responses as the first and best comments broadcast were that the advantage of having a Labour controlled Assembly for most of that time were free prescriptions, the plastic bag charge, and the smoking ban on enclosed premises! Even the First Minister could only think of what might not have happened – the Cardiff Airport might not have been municipalised!

    Come on BBC Wales – can’t you think up better fake news than that?

    Where were the improvements in the Welsh NHS, Welsh Education, the Welsh economy?

    …should be fed ‘halal’ meat from animals that have had their throats slit without being stunned. … “the slaughterman must be a Muslim,”.

    – Halal promotes a Muslim World view
    – Halal creates jobs for Muslims only (positive employment discrimination as a Muslim must slaughter the animal)
    – Halal creates jobs for the Muslim religion (positive religious discrimination as a Muslim must recite from the Koran whilst slitting an animal’s throat whilst it can still see the world)
    – Halal cannot be mixed with pork (animal discrimination because pig is unacceptable, pork will disappear)
    – Halal is Sharia compliant (makes Islamic Sharia acceptable, and future financing via )

    Also, once Halal becomes standard policy in the Army, Prisons and Schools it will only be a matter of time when the Halal Authority demand that all Halal products are bought using Islamic Finance {biasedbbc post}, thus supporting Islamic countries and possibly terrorism.

    – When you go for a job at a slaughterhouse you will be asked if you are Muslim or willing to become a Muslim to get the job.
    – Every Halal slaughter is a thank you to the Islamic Allah God.
    – Once Halal food is dominate it will demand it is used to financing the Islamic World, from the Western World’s pockets.

    Heard on Toady this morning, during an interview with Gen. David Petraeus, the casual question: ‘But is he up to it?’. No prizes for guessing the question was about President Trump – a perfect example of the staggering bias and arrogance of the BBC.

    Was a similar question ever asked about Pres Obama, probably the lowest achieving US President since the end of WWII? Of course not. Obama (in deference to his skin colour, for there is no other possible explanation) was and is treated like some kind of divine king. Trump, on the other hand, isn’t even granted the basic courtesy due to his office.

    What a pathetic excuse for journalism and how typical of this rotten to the core and completely out of control organisation.

      I woke in the middle of the night to hear Rhod Sharp on Up All Night leading a three-way anti-Trump session. It was full of ‘deeply significant’ analyses based on suggestions from the ‘Emmys’ that they couldn’t use the impeachment storyline because that might be overtaken by real events.

      There is something seriously wrong in the USA when the national media and parts of government have been actively working against the elected president from the off. And why does our ‘impartial’ BBC feel the need to join in?

      Well we know the answer to that question. They loved the incompetent, ineffectual Obama because he hated the UK and they hate the untried Trump because he professes to love the UK – ‘Our enemy’s enemy is our friend’, the BBC’s motto.

      P.S. It’s going well for their other hero, Macron, unpopular in France and street protests.

      Given the nature and gravity of what Policy Exchange and Petraeus were saying….don`t you think that a vastly-paid experinced hack like Humphrys might have been able to stay on topic?
      For Gods sake, the General said he`s even been talking to Kissinger last night!
      Yet Humphrys lost his attention span and went into Trump baiting under the excuse of North Korea-which is also a serious topic, so might matter more that Craig Browns views on Princess Margaret. Terrible trivial idiot Humphrys.
      Probably the most useless and wasted opportunity of this week-Petraeus had a lot of clever things to say, but the BBC simply have ADHD unless they can get an anti Trump/anti Boris soundbite any more.

    More superb comedy from BBC news. Apparently an anti racism charity wants a chant about Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku banned. It’s not exactly Rosa Parks, is it? A multi millionaire footballer being praised affectionately for the size of his penis by adoring fans. I would be furious if such a chant about me were banned.

    Nothing about these vibrant bombers. Where did they learn their extreme views? What places did they frequent? Should they all be shut down immediately before we sleep walk into another tragedy?

    You’d expect our national broadcaster to be bang on the case, but that would involve hate facts so let’s just go back to sleep and whine about supposedly mean words. And when the next bomb is successful and there are dead children with nails on their heads, the Beeb can pat themselves on the back knowing they dealt with the real problem – adoring fans praising their star striker’s penis size.

    I have come to a conclusion…..that the current government (at least) agree with us, and KNOW that Islam is to blame for never ending (Islamic) attacks on the innocent people of the UK (the very people all governments are sworn to protect). What they are also aware of though, is their own survival. The most important factor in every decision taken by the vast majority of those who publically state themselves as ‘Conservative’, is “how will this affect me and how will I look..” How else could a group of highly educated (up for debate I know) individuals conclude that the correct response to actions in the name of Islam is to “sensor the internet”?

    Islamic actions are being carried out everywhere that Islam has infested. Poor/rich (Bin Laden), young/old, man/woman, from Australia and the US to Indonesia and Sweden…..Muslims are purposely slaughtering none-Muslims all over the globe. Why? What is it that is making them do this?

    Is it misinterpretation of the Islamic text? This is the very reason/lie the political Jihadi’s and their Dhimmis give when traitors like the Al ShaBBC allow them to create narrative for excusing the slaughter. But who is misinterpreting the words and instruction of Allah? Surely the ONLY place to go for this answer is Mohammed? The cult believe that Mohammed received the very instruction they all must live by from Allah himself. They ALL believe that he alone received this instruction and that he will be the last man to receive the true word of God/Allah before the end of time. So what life did he live? At best he was a conqueror, a champion of keeping and owning slaves, who’s very purpose was to submit the world to his God with the sword, who believed in the supremacy of those who followed his God and the intolerance of those who didnt (the Sharia and Quran is this very purpose, to subject the world to the supremacy of Islam and intolerance to those who will need follow it)….at worst, he was a mass murderer, slaughterer of innocent men, women and children, a mass raper, a pedo…

    Therefore…Is it the Islamic State and those carrying out the very actions and instructions Mohammed wanted and indeed carried out himself that has misinterpreted what Islam is about?…..Or is it those Muslims who are NOT living like Mohammed did?

    Which goes back to my original statement. Our government know that they can never hope to challenge the theological aspect of what the Islamic State, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram etc are stating, because the very source of what they are stating is from the source of their religion. Our government know this. All Muslims know this. So the only way they believe they can stop this is to “sensor the internet”. But we know this will not work. The IRA didnt use the internet. Al Qaeda didnt. And every day our government, our politicians and media establishment purposely and wilfully ignore dealing with the problem, they alone cause, and they alone are responsible for every single drop of blood spilt in the name of Mohammed and his God

      If only we could see what Islamic leaders are like … Chechnya’s authoritarian leader Ramzan Kadyrov is spearheading a campaign to reunite divorced couples, involving Muslim clerics who preach Sharia law. {bbc.co.uk 24aug2017}

      A commission appointed by Mr Kadyrov claims to have reunited 948 couples in six weeks. He has espoused conservative Islam in the Russian Caucasus republic.

      When he announced the initiative in July, Mr Kadyrov said children from broken homes were more likely to be recruited by extremists.

      One of Mr Kadyrov’s family reunion team, Rustam Abazov, insisted that “there are no forced reunions, because we live in a civilised society”.

      In the report apart from censoring the internet, which would not work even were it feasible – it did say, we have to ask ourselves some difficult questions.
      Not sure what those questions might be but I can hazard a guess. For the most part, especially following 9/11, it was, “How can we be more, loving, understanding, forgiving, accepting, accommodating, self deprecating and submissive regarding Islam?” Nothing has much changed since then, other than the demands of Islamists and the acquiescence of the West.
      For too many, after the all the years of appeasement, the only response remains: We must try harder to please Muslims – we must abandon our culture, our values and the lives of our children – then maybe, just maybe they’ll like us or at least stop murdering us?

    How the bBC goes out of its way in which to defend the inexcusable:

    Mwaikambo started off by taking photos of the body bag from a distance. Then he went further. He lifted the plastic sheeting around the corpse’s face, and took more.Then came the move that pushed Mwaikambo’s actions into the criminal. He uploaded seven of the pictures, plus one short video, to his Facebook page.
    Mwaikambo did so, he now claims, in anger and confusion.
    But also, he says, out of habit. Posting regular status updates to his Facebook page is, for him, just “something he does”.
    His Facebook account was set to “open”, meaning anyone with an internet connection could see his pictures if they looked.
    But even then the pictures didn’t go viral. It took the involvement of someone else – professional photographer Jason Kay – for the police to get involved. Around 08:00 that morning, Mwaikambo met Mr Kay, who had just arrived on the scene. He offered him use of all his photographs from the previous night. What about the arrest? Did Mr Kay help the police arrest Mwaikambo? “The police said ‘do you know where he is now?’,” he explained. “I said, ‘I’ve got his mobile number – I can give him a call’. “They were there to meet him and greet him and seize his iPad and everything else.” Mwaikambo was arrested outside Latimer Road Tube station at around 18:00 on 14 June; 17 hours after the fire took hold.
    He appeared in court two days later, where he pleaded guilty to two charges of breaching the 2003 Communications Act by posting offensive images to a social media network. Mwaikambo acknowledges that he broke the law, and that he acted immorally. But he remains confused and upset by his treatment. “It’s just a picture,” he says. “I didn’t steal. I didn’t kill. I didn’t commit any crime that I know is really a high risk. “I can understand why people are angry.

    The bBC which refuses to post cartoons of a long dead paedophilic warlord, which will go to great lenghts in why it is morally wrong for them to do so. Has no problems defending a bloke who uncovered a dead person , took pictures and uploaded them on line.

    And to the bBC he is the victim.

      I don’t see why a photograph of a dead body is ‘offensive’, indeed it could be argued that we should see more then perhaps we might look after each other better. I don’t see it as an immoral act either.

      I can see some validity in a charge related to interfering with evidence but not liking what someone does shouldn’t be the basis for prosecution.

        I think a lot of people will beg to differ on that, especially the last bit. Can’t have people sticking their smart phones anywhere they please, although if a member of my family was involved, I know where I’d like to stick it.

        I see what you are saying JimS – freedom to show what is happening. Giving the Government a means to stop revealing the truth. I agree that a photo in itself is not a problem – but accessing evidence of a potential crime scene is. i.e. planting evidence for example.

    Laura Kuenssberg can’t understand why we’re all still talking about that £350m. But Twitter quickly provided the answer {thecanary 18sep2017}

    – Notice how the TheCanary article mentions that Boris Johnson did not use the rebate figure, but it does not show what that figure is. So you are left with a supposed £350m lie, but no actual figure (£276m with rebate according to BBC facts).

    – Laura Kuenssberg has access to the BBC fact checking service? “Britain pays £276m a week to the EU budget because of the rebate {bbc.co.uk 22apr2016}

    – What has happened is TheCanary article just tries to disproves a point without giving the actual figure, which is shocking in itself and would prove the point that money could be used elsewhere with out without rebate.

      Noted that the so-called “independent” Statistics Quangos are now weaponised, as is the recent need to get “fact checks” on the likes of the BBC.
      These things seem only to be needed after the Referendum-after Trump called them out on their fake news.
      So now we get academics who will see what they get paid to see, measure what “The State” pays them to measure.
      Even “More Or Less” on Radio 4 knows this to be nonsense-these quangos also have the likes of Jack Straw as leading members…and we all know what his expenses, his taxi for hire and his WMD records are like.

    Has anyone officially assessed how well the ‘Prevent’ strategy is going? I bet loads of money is going to radicals masquerading as ‘moderates’ and thus finding jihad. Wasn’t the brother of one f the London attackers receiving money from the scheme?

    They might as well call it the ‘Encourage’ strategy.

    Get the idea now that the Radio 4 news bulletins are totally deranged.
    Heard a sideswipe at Aung San Suu Kyi at 8am today on Radio 4 that was just the BBCs hack attack on what she said in a national broadcast…”she clearly hasn`t seen, doesn`t know what we do” kind of thing.
    This is editorial, not news-yet the BBC are so submissive to islam now that they can only suck it all up and regurgitate it for the rest of us.
    Likewise with Boris Johnsons article-after the non-row over that figure(which seems never to bring out THEIR truly costed answer does it, I notice?)-there is no analysis or argument over what he said, let alone any quotes…just the endless media ferret juggling over “who`s in, who`s out in the Tory party-and who`s talking to us here on the BBC?”
    Utter crap-can`t we give Brussels the BBC as a parting gift to them? They no longer speak for Britain, just for teachers and labour councillors. Time to bin them.

      Alicia
      Yes I heard that and did you notice they introduced the item by saying okay the militant islamists did start it by attacking police stations and killing vast numbers of people….then quickly said but the response has been totally disproportionate…and then criticised Aung San becuase she had the temerity to say she wants to know why so many people are fleeing…
      As far as the BBC knows – based on the evidence they seem to present, which is word of mouth some of this fleeing may simply be mass hysteria – one group flees and tell others who flee…I’m not saying it all is but surely the BBC would like to know the truth ….and may be explain why it started – ohy es the islamists

    Once again the BBC proves itself unfit to hold a broadcasting licence, let alone be the recipients of a poll tax. Today’s WATO, while continuing to ignore the recent dramatic stumble from ‘global warming’ scientivists as they begin the agonising inevitability of recanting their beliefs, managed to tie together the current hurricane season, which no respectable hurricane expert believes can be tied to ‘global warming’, by… tying it to ‘global warming’ with the help of a fervent Oxford true believer!

    I wonder how they managed to pick him to comment on the hurricanes? As if I couldn’t guess…

    Did anyone else notice, this morning, on the Today programme, that the BBC referenced a couple of think tanks? They only stood out because the reports prefaced the name of the bodies with the word’s ‘centre-Right’ or ‘Right’.

    Now, I never hear the BBC refer to Left-leaning think tanks like ‘The Resolution Foundation’ ( currently chaired by the former ‘wet’ Conservative MP David Willets, but nevertheless left-leaning in its outlook), or the Joseph Rowntree Federation – both often simply introduced as they were neutral and authoritative bodies.

    It’s insidious, and in their genes..

        And as if by magic, the following from ex-BBC man, Scott Gronmark, on whose excellent blog, the following has just appeared. I hope he will forgive me for quoting him both out of context and without permission!

        https://scottgronmark.blogspot.co.uk/

        “When I was an intrepid TV newshound, the Royal College of Nursing would – every year, regular as clockwork – release an utterly bogus press report claiming that 75% of Britain’s nurses would prefer to work abroad, because NHS pay and working conditions were so terrible. Every year I’d argue that this was PR rubbish and not news, and every year, I’d be ignored, and we’d end up doing this non-story on all main news programmes. Nothing seems to have changed (except one gets the impression that 75% of NHS nurses come from abroad – perhaps their places back home have been filled by those British nurses who were so eager to leave).”

        “Before you start banging about not having enough money to fund your own pet policies/specialities/projects etc., I will ask you, if you come up with that, just which other part of the Health service you believe should be raided for money to pay for them.
